The Opificio delle pietre dure, literally meaning Workshop of Semi-Precious Stones, is a public institute of the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage based in Florence.
The institute arose in 1588 from the passion of the Medici Family, of which author Dan Brown mentions in his latest book Inferno, for the semi-precious stone inlays.
The City of Florence is divided in two by the river Arno, but its charming bridges give it a harmonious sense of continuity between the two sides. All of Florence’s bridges share centuries of history. The oldest and most famous is certainly Ponte Vecchio, mentioned by author Dan Brown in his novel Inferno. However, the other bridges are also important and noteworthy, given their stories, particularities, and that they have become real monuments.Details
The Basilica of San Lorenzo (Basilica of St Lawrence), located in the centre town piazza of the same name, is one of the oldest churches in Florence.

From May 4 until May 18, 2015, the City of Florence hosted the filming of the movie Inferno (we don’t know whether the title of the film has actually been decided).

After a few days of shooting in the lagoon, the American crew moved operations to the Tuscan town.Details
The Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, one of the finest examples of Italian Gothic architecture, faces a vast piazza of the same name, which was built to complement it.
